This incredible moment was captured by naturalist Izzy Szczepaniak on Sunday. The humpback was seen breaching approximately 20 times, just offshore from San Francisco. An additional eight humpback whales were seen on the same trip.
Pigeon Point in Pescadero is a great place to watch for whales right now while the anchovy are running. Watch for the pelicans and gulls going after the anchovy balls. Where there are large flocks of diving birds, there will likely be humpback whales! Don’t forget your binoculars!
